James Alfred Poe

Son of W. T. Poe, departed this life on the 15th of February, 1859, in the 16th year of his age.
He joined the Baptist church in his eleventh year; being baptised by Eld. Samuel Douthit. He lived an orderly christian, and thus budded on earth to bloom in heaven. While we shed the tear of sorrow at his loss on earth, we hope to meet him again beyond this vale of tears.
